Visitor Tips and News About Center of the Nation Monument
Geographical Center of the U.S. (Visitors Center)
The tourist-friendly visitors center is up and running. We stopped by in July 2009. Outside, there's a walkway lined with state flags and the centerpiece, a large stone compass noting Belle Fourche as the geographic center of the 50 states. While tourist-friendly, the center isn't exactly accuracy friendly. The real center is about 13 miles north.[Steve Cook, 11/23/2009]
